Does anyone else use VoIP over the 3G network?

I was surprised at the quality of my Skype call that i made over the 3g network. The latency wasn't too bad, probably the same, if not better than a mobile call. The sound quality itself was much better than a mobile call.

Is Vodafone still against customers using VoIP through their network?

We don't support VOIP and it's best efforts, but we don't do anything to block it either.

HSPA offers much better latency than 3G itself, so you'll start to be able to do more real-time services with HSPA than ever before.

If you're not moving it's great and voice quality is typically very good. Packet loss during handovers either between sectors on a site and between sites can be an issue since most RTP voice traffic is UDP not TCP.

johnr: I use SIP, skype all the time on 3G+ and it works great


So if my phone says im on 3g+, does that mean i'm on HSPA, not the standard 3g?

Is HSPA available where ever standard 3g is available?
